Help to Teach Your Kids to Eat More Fruits & Veggies with Copy-Kids DVD

As any parent knows, children can be so picky when it comes to their food.  I am very fortunate that my children love many vegetables and most fruits.  We still go through phases though where they do not want to eat or have decided they no longer like a particular veggie.  Tonight while I was preparing dinner, Austin came around the corner and said, “Mama, I smell those peas and they are not for me!”  Both of my children are in a phase where they no longer want to eat green peas.  I am not too concerned since it usually only lasts a week or so and they love so many vegetables.  There are some children though that will not eat any!

DVD Copy-Kids Eat Fruits & Vegetables

Copy Kids DVD has been designed to help parents teach their children that healthy eating can be so much fun!  The DVD is divided into 12 chapters that are only 6-8 minutes each.  Each chapter focuses on a different fruit or vegetable:

  • Bell Peppers
  • Carrots
  • Raspberries
  • Broccoli
  • Bananas
  • Strawberries
  • Tomatoes
  • Cucumbers
  • Oranges
  • Avocado
  • Apples
  • Blueberries

The first time I put this on for the children they were at work with me.  I was unable to really focus on it much but the children really seemed to enjoy it.  For whatever reason they love the carrot & cucumber chapters.  Those are two of their personal favorite veggies so maybe that plays a role.

Addie immediately noticed the Blue bird on the front that she so lovingly refers to as “Rio” so she was sold just by the cover!  I love that throughout they show the children laughing and giggling as they enjoy eating their healthy delicious fruits and veggies.  I think, especially for very young toddlers, this is a great video!  It is fun and yet as we all know that children imitate what they see others doing, it encourages children to maybe want to try new things that they may otherwise reject.  Yesterday, Addie willing picked up an onion slice and first used it as a bracelet but then much to my surprise started munching on it.  She didn’t eat the entire piece but I was so excited she was even willing to give it a try, and all on her own!

Today we watched parts of the Copy-Kids DVD and throughout the day, between both of my children they ate a pound of organic strawberries and 6 ounces of Raspberries.  Berries in any form have been favorites of my children since they were able to eat them!  Children learn and adapt to what they are exposed to.  I love that through the DVD, it also encourages parents to feed their children healthy foods.  If children are provided fresh fruits and vegetables early on, they are much more likely to continue these habits.

The Copy-Kids DVD is recommended from ages 6 months to 5 years.  They have won two children’s excellence awards for their work on the DVD, one from Dr. Toy and MACT.  They were also approved by the USDA and added to their Education and Training Materials Database for pre-school nutrition.

  1. I am always trying different fruits and veggies. My kids like veggies with dip. Also cutting things into shapes helps. Divided plates with little portions or different portions with dip. Even a ‘deconstructed salad’ – a divided plate with spots for dip, lettuce, tomatos, and croutons.

  2. My kids eat fruits and vegetables really well luckily. Sometimes I make it fun with fun shapes or dips for them. We also talk about antioxidants and vitamins. They really like to know how it’s helping their body. I don’t always know but I tell them we can look it up

  3. I have them pick out a fruit or vegetable they want to try, find a couple of recipes for them to chose from and then we make it together and talk about it afterwards.

  4. our 3 year old grandson just loves fruits & veggies so we just have him eat them first before he fills up on meat

  5. We make green smoothies together and mix fruits and veggies together. Alyssa helps make it so she is excited about drinking it afterwards. We have also pureed spinach to eggs to make “Green Eggs” after reading the book Green Eggs and Ham. She ate it all! Any other day she would not have eaten spinach with eggs.

  6. I do a lot of cooking with my daughter. Even if she only watches while I cut veggies and then “helps” by transfering them into a bowl, she feels like part of it and wants to eat it more.

  7. This is such a great idea for teaching kids the importance of healthy foods in their diet. We grow a big garden here, so in addition to eating fresh veggies/fruits, we are preserving them. Even young kids love eating the food they planted and watched grow, so I find this a great way to get them to eat too!

    1. I can totally relate with the garden and preserving! It is amazing how much my children love to be involved in gardening and as a result are great eaters.

  8. I am so glad my son right now is not a picky eater when it comes to veggies but I still want to get this so he will try new veggies I have not given him yet

  9. I tell my children how big and strong they will be if they eat their fruits and veggies and that works great!

  10. My son never really had a problem eatting his veggies when he was young…….well except sour kraut & squash, lol.
